Need help finding somewhere to buy Sony MDR MA900's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all!

 

I've been trying to buy a pair of Sony MDR MA900s since late November, I put in an order with B&H Photo and after an agonizingly long wait they have informed me that they can't actually get them in. I'm located in Australia which doesn't seem to help me at all, and the only places left that I can actually find the headphones are on ebay, which I'm uncertain about buying from (is it a risky buy?)

 

These two looked the most promising

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-Open-Air-Stereo-Headphones-MDR-MA900-NEW-/111201798289?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item19e424c891

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-SONY-MDR-MA900-Stereo-Full-Open-Air-Headphones-MDR-MA900-From-JP-/171086662034?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item27d58f4992

 

Or trying to go through either the US or Japan Amazon and using Shipito or Tenso to forward it onto me.

So any recommendations and advice would be really appreciated.

I think your problem is that MDR-MA900 have been discontinued.

eBay may be your only option - unless you can watch the head-fi buy/sell and get really, really lucky.

Yeah I was made aware of this just the other day.

Do you think buying them off ebay is a safe idea? Or will I wind up with a fake?
